Camp Pride at Hi-Hills June 24, 2015

Welcome to your Best Summer Ever! Hi-Hills has officially kicked off Summer 2015, and we are thrilled to announce this week’s theme: Camp Pride! Throughout the week campers have been orienting themselves with all things Hi-Hills. On Monday, bunks met up to get to know one another and worked together to create a bunk name and bunk cheer. They will be showcasing their bunk pride at Friday’s Council Ring. During performing arts, campers learned the Hi-Hills song. For this week’s dress up day, we will all be donning our favorite camp t-shirts! We can’t wait to see all the Hi-Hills spirit!


One of the best ways we embody camp pride here at Hi-Hills is through the #BeBetter Movement. Founded by our Assistant Director of Summer and Auxiliary Programs, Nicole Spiotta, the #BeBetter Movement integrates camp spirit with character growth. Each week, both bunk and speciality counselors recognize campers who go above and beyond to accomplish goals by awarding them with a dog tag. Campers can be commended for making good choices, trying out new activities, conquering fears and welcoming new friends. The movement encourages four focal points: Be You, Be Creative, Be Challenged, and Be Strong. The #BeBetter Movement is not just limited to campers; even counselors and staff can be recognized for outstanding achievements throughout the week. As a result, we practice camp pride and spirit by also encouraging self-improvement and development.


We look forward to wrapping up a fabulous Week #1 at Hi-Hills. Check back Friday for the Hi-Hills Herald and weekly photo gallery.
